As mentioned in [[ArchWiki:Requests#Enforcement]] (and regardless of its result), I think this page should be moved to [[Template:Delete]] to match the verb form of [[Template:Merge]] and [[Template:Moveto]]. And also because in [[Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Deletion]] the backlinks via [[Template:Delete]] are counted twice. Alternatively this could also be achieved by eliminating the redirect, but I think the former variant is better. -- [[User:Lahwaacz|Lahwaacz]] ([[User talk:Lahwaacz|talk]]) 21:00, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
:It's not easy to make status templates' names consistent: would we also change [[Template:Expansion]] to [[Template:Expand]]? And [[Template:Out of date]] to [[Template:Update]]? And [[Template:Stub]] to... er... well, you get the point :P Maybe more than matching verb forms we should just follow what we feel most natural, and [[Template:Delete]] is as natural as [[Template:Deletion]] for me, so I wouldn't mind the renaming. [[Template:Moveto]] feels instead very unnatural, it should be simply [[Template:Move]] I believe. — [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 04:07, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
::You're absolutely right about [[Template:Moveto]], so I just moved it to [[Template:Move]] as its introductory note already described as "move" flag. Whether we keep [[Template:Deletion]] or [[Template:Delete]], is it more natural to eliminate the other in order to avoid the duplicates or keep it to allow the other natural form of the flag? -- [[User:Lahwaacz|Lahwaacz]] ([[User talk:Lahwaacz|talk]]) 17:23, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
:::I think this status template is the only one with a redirection, so eliminating it would make sense. Removing "Delete" would be easier, and also I think I'm used to adding "Deletion" now, it would probably take me a while to get used to using "Delete" instead, but as I said it wouldn't be such a big problem for me, so I'll leave the decision to you :) — [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 15:35, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
::::Since Alad gracefully removed all transclusions of the "Delete" template (thanks!) and I'm also used to writing "Deletion" instead of "Delete", [[Template:Delete]] is now deleted. -- [[User:Lahwaacz|Lahwaacz]] ([[User talk:Lahwaacz|talk]]) 21:10, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
